Key features

Accelerate production

As the front-end to your entire MediaCentral ecosystem, you have access to every module, app, service, and connector available to you all within one interface, streamlining your workflow. From global search capabilities, drag-and-drop content creation, and tracking social media trends, to ingesting, transcoding, managing, editing, reviewing, publishing, and delivering content, professional media production has never been so collaborative or easy.

Do everything in one interface

All MediaCentral workflow modules, apps, services, and connectors can be accessed through the MediaCentral | Cloud UX web or mobile app interface. That means you can search for, ingest, move, edit, and view detailed info about content all in a single interface. You can also preview and play back clips in your search results, create shot lists of the media you want to use, or simply drag and drop the assets right into the editing timeline to begin cutting together a story.

Shape and enhance stories anywhere

MediaCentral | Cloud UX displays a timeline and simple video editing tools whenever you open a workflow module or app in the interface, making it easy to work on stories in the field, assemble rough cuts on location, or edit in your home facility without full-featured editing software. Use the built-in Asset Editor to mark in and out points on the clips you choose. Create sequences and perform basic editing—including L-cuts and transitions. You can even use the built-in audio tools to incorporate voiceovers and other sounds into your rough cut.

Integrate Maestro graphics into your workflow—just added

MediaCentral now integrates with Maestro solutions, greatly speeding up the graphics creation process for quick-turnaround news and sports production. Easily browse, search for, and access MediaCentral-managed content from Maestro | Designer, Maestro | News, Maestro | Live, and Maestro | PowerWall. Fill in Maestro | News graphics templates and then link them directly to MediaCentral | Newsroom Management stories. You can even drag and drop Maestro graphics into story segments and open graphics from a production cue.

Gain more editing flexibility—just added

Using MediaCentral | Production Management and MediaCentral | Asset Management? You can now mix and match assets from both workflow modules in the same timeline for easier story creation. This gives you the flexibility to create shotlists in either module and edit content together from both systems using MediaCentral | Cloud UX—without having to move media.

Ingest entire media volumes—just added

With the new MediaCentral | Ingest Qt desktop application—as well as with the MediaCentral | Ingest app in MediaCentral | Cloud UX—you can now ingest entire media volumes (in addition to single assets) to speed up asset acquisition.

Find the right clips faster—just added

Looking for specific clips that contain certain spoken words or phrases? MediaCentral | Asset Management and Production Management now support phonetic indexing and search, making it easy to locate all relevant master clips across any indexed media library based on the dialogue they contain—right from your web browser or mobile device. Simply type a keyword or phrase to find all clips that match the speech you seek.

Edit and interact with assets in more ways

MediaCentral makes completing media tasks even easier than before. Easily hone in on the best parts of a clip and gain greater flexibility when adding assets to your sequences with 3-point editing. Speed up or slow down video playback without changing the pitch of the audio. And speed up logging workflows with tons of improvements, enhancements, and keyboard shortcuts for working with markers.

Archive assets with ease

When using MediaCentral | Production Management or MediaCentral | Newsroom Management, you can now archive and restore content and stories to and from MediaCentral | Shared Library in multiple resolutions—right from MediaCentral | Cloud UX. You can also use Cloud UX to transfer assets and media from one Production Management workgroup to another.

Restore production archives

If you’re using Production Archive Manager or Interplay Archive Manager, you can now search for assets in your archive and restore media right from MediaCentral | Cloud UX. This workflow also makes migrating to MediaCentral | Shared Library easier, as you can quickly restore content from Archive Manager and then archive it to Shared Library.

Accelerate news workflows

With the MediaCentral | Rundown app, you can create, edit, and archive stories from your web browser or mobile device. View and edit queues and rundowns. Edit news stories, including production cues, templates, and placeholders. Create, associate, and remove sequences from stories. And copy and move stories to other queues.

Get to know your assets

View detailed information about any video, audio, graphics, or document file, including the size, format, resolution, and its metadata with the built-in Asset Editor. You can even inspect and edit any selected asset’s properties in the File Info tab.
